PIA Press Release

Herrera hands seedlings for Bohol Day Catigbian fruit-tree planting project

Tagbilaran City (27 July) -- TRUE to his personal conviction, Vice Governor Julius Caesar Herrera tied up with Catigbian local officials to use every little opportunity for agricultural production as a way to enhance family income and care for the environment.

Through a tree-planting program that the town has put up as a legacy to their younger generations, Herrera mainly provided seedlings to 793 graduating students from Catigbian's local public and private schools.

Herrera responded to the town's tree-planting project, which Mayor Roberto Salinas dubbed as a precious gift for the next generation.

The vice governor, who also sits as the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Agriculture Committee Chair has always advocated for increased agricultural production to pull Bohol into that dream of becoming the real food basket of the Visayas.

The activity was also in consonance with the municipal ordinance mandating all graduating students to plant fruit bearing trees before they can breeze through school.

In a synchronized fruit bearing tree-planting activity organized to coincide with the 155th Bohol Foundation Day, Herrera gave 800 coconut seedlings, 281 chico seedlings, 576 mango seedlings, 594 guava and 800 lomboy seedlings.

Herrera's help also included 207 jackfruit seedlings, 562 star-apple, 160 marang, 85 santol, 164 guyabano and 75 rambutan seedlings.

According to Salinas, the activity is also in support of the Bohol Day celebration adopted theme, which is "Together we can build a greater Bohol."

It is quite ironic that when we want to buy fruits, we have to go to Tagbilaran where we have all the available space to plant here, Salinas said.

We want to make Catibian a green haven for peace, progress and development and we are doing exactly that, the former league of mayors president shared. (PIA) [top]
